Starting Couples & marriage counseling

What is couples & marriage counseling?

  • Jealousy
  • Trust issues
  • Infidelity
  • Opposing values
  • Different visions for the future
  • Disagreements in parenting
  • Lack of trust
  • Financial distress
  • Sex issues

The types of therapy used in couples and marriage counseling include:

  • The Gottman Method
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Emotionally-focused therapy (EFT)
  • Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT)
  • Strength-based therapy

What kind of therapist is best for couples?

At Thriveworks, Couples & marriage counseling is led by licensed professionals — often licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) — who are experts in their field and best-equipped to help couples.

What is the Gottman Method of couples therapy?

The Gottman Method of couples therapy is a research-supported approach designed to enhance relationships by bolstering the bond between partners, resolving conflicts, and fostering shared meaning in their relationship through comprehensive assessments and tailored interventions that improve communication, trust, and the overall health of the partnership.

How to tell if I need couples therapy?

If you’re facing persistent relationship problems, communication breakdowns, or unresolved conflicts that are impacting your emotional well-being and happiness, Couples & marriage counseling may be beneficial for you.

Should every couple go to couples therapy?

While marriage and couple’s counseling is typically recommended for couples who are experiencing persistent or severe relationship issues, any relationship can benefit from attending these sessions.

Is couples & marriage counseling conducted in person or online?

Marriage and couples counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does couples & marriage counseling last?

On average, couples attend marriage and couples counseling for 12 weeks. However, couples & marriage counseling may last longer or shorter, dependent on the couples’ needs, the challenges they’d like to work through, and the pace of their progress.

How much does couples & marriage counseling cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Need more help deciding?

As relationships age, they naturally go through changes. You and your partner will likely have good days and bad days, and will share many life experiences together. When you share so much of life with another person, it is inevitable that you will have disagreements or come to a crossroads at some point.

At times, you and your partner may be able to work through your differences or agree to disagree. Other days, you may find yourself at odds, both refusing to back down or just unable to reach any form of resolution. Maybe you’re having a hard time communicating your feelings with each other, or a specific event or experience is creating extreme stress that’s driving a wedge between you.

It’s okay to ask for help navigating difficult periods of your relationship. A couples therapist or counselor can act as a mediator, an interpreter, or a guide and help you improve the quality of your connection and show you how to maintain your bond long-term.

If your relationship is in a rut or hitting some unexpected turbulence, consider beginning couples counseling with Thriveworks in Loveland, CO. A licensed marriage and family therapist can help you work through the issues creating space between you and your spouse or partner.

Why Do Couples Seek Out Relationship Counseling?

Couples counseling can help you work through nearly any issue that is causing disruption in your relationship or interfering with your family life. Whether you are working through a tumultuous life change as a family or struggling to rebuild broken trust, a couples therapist or counselor can provide gentle guidance and advice to help you overcome the situation together.

There is no wrong reason to pursue couples counseling, particularly if you are struggling with any of these common relationship issues:

  • Breakdown in communication
  • Major life changes
  • Grief or loss
  • Trust issues or jealousy
  • Infidelity
  • Intimacy issues or sexual dissatisfaction
  • Divorce or separation
  • Marriage or blending families
  • Financial issues
  • Change in roles or family dynamic
  • Mental health issues

If changes in your life are interfering with your relationship or a shift in your relationship is negatively affecting your life, couples therapy or counseling can help. You can connect with a couples therapist or counselor at Thriveworks in Loveland, CO, to help you get to the bottom of what’s causing distress in your relationship and resolve underlying or ongoing issues.

How Can Couples Therapy Help?

Working with a couples therapist or counselor can help you resolve conflict and rebuild broken trust. But for many couples, working with a professional also improves their relationships in many other ways. Marriage and family therapy is a great preventative tool that can help you construct healthy boundaries and clear lines of communication to maintain a healthy relationship.

The primary goal of couples therapy is to help two people better understand and appreciate one another. Through multiple therapy sessions, you’ll learn how to effectively communicate your thoughts and emotions, creating an opportunity to recognize and accept each other’s differences. You’ll learn how to identify potential issues before they make waves and find healthy, practical solutions for your problems.

The skills you learn during your couples therapy sessions can even be applied to other relationships in your life. Clear communication, effective problem-solving, and active listening can improve the quality of your friendships, professional partnerships, and relationships with other family members.

When your relationship is happy and healthy, it can spill over into other areas of your life. If you’re ready to take the next steps in improving and fortifying your bond with your partner, you can schedule your first appointment with a couples therapist or counselor at Thriveworks in Loveland, CO, online or by calling our helpful scheduling team.

I am very happy to offer my highest recommendations for a therapist working with the community at Thriveworks. Here is an example of what it is like to be in Linda Armendariz’s care. We had a family session with Linda. She spoke with each of us beforehand, to have a clear understanding of what each person hoped to accomplish. She was a calming presence throughout our session, gently bringing us back to the issues we wanted to address and helping us hear what was being said. Our common goal was to really understand each other and to be heard. As parents we wanted to support our adult son without enabling him, showing high expectations with a lot of warmth. We were mostly struggling with boundaries, which was confusing to him. In the end we came to a very clear and actionable plan with goals and dates. We each had assignments that we could accomplish. It was agreed that we would work together, openly. We agreed to communicate as a group moving forward. Respect has been key. Linda models what she says. She is intuitive and to the point, so time is used wisely. I believe that anyone who gets to work with Linda will grow steadily!
